Asia Bibi's daughters

This ‘blaspheming’ Christian mother is on death row in Pakistan for drinking from a Muslim’s cup. Now her husband reveals that even if she’s freed the lynch mob has been offered a £60 bounty to kill her

The husband of a Christian Pakistani mother-of-five sentenced to death simply for drinking from a Muslim’s cup has said he fears locals will beat her to death even if she is acquitted.

Ashiq Masih gave an emotional interview to MailOnline in which he said his family had been ‘broken’ by the pain of living without his wife Asia Bibi, 50, who has been in prison for five years awaiting a death sentence for blasphemy.

Asia is the first woman sentenced to hang under Pakistan’s controversial blasphemy law, but her husband of 22 years still insists she’s been framed and is begging the Supreme Court to acquit her later this month.

    I have blasphemed by using the same electromagnetic spectrum as Moslems.

    • I try to blaspheme at least once before breakfast.

    ‘He and their children live in hiding and have moved 15 times in six years’

    If this family was Muslim and not Christian there would have already been an international intervention and they would have already been granted refugee status in any number of Western countries.

    All of this strife because a woman drank out of a cup.

    Imagine a world without islam.
